We Need Lunch Buddies!

What is a Lunch Buddy?

The Lunch Buddy is a daily parent volunteer who gives extra support to our Developmental and Traditional Kindergarten, and other grade classes during lunch hours.

What are the Lunch Buddy’s Responsibilities?

  • On your volunteer day(s) you will sign the volunteer log in the front office with Mrs. Say/Ms. Liu at their designated times and put on a visitor sticker.  
  • You will need to head to the DK room to help escort the DK students to the lunch room, or join them there if the class has already left.

Please know, you will not be able to eat lunch with your child directly, instead you will help settle the DK/K students as they sit down and begin eating. You are then free to roam the lunch room and help the other grade kids as well.  

All Lunch Buddy volunteers are working in conjunction with the Addams Lunch Staff however, DK/TK are your primary charges and you should not leave their area.

If you would like to volunteer email addamslunchbuddy@gmail.com to get involved.
